As of February . The employees are not all Canadian, as some salaried personnel are from the U. The GM restructuring has resulted in a lower break-even point for annual sales and renewed profits because of the loss of millions of jobs. In mid, GM's corporate chrome power emblem " Mark of Excellence " began appearing on all recently introduced and all-new model vehicles produced and sold in North America.
However, in the "New GM" reversed this, saying that emphasis on its four core divisions would downplay the GM logo. In May , GM recorded an Employees from those plants would also be made redundant. In the third-largest individual country by sales was Brazil with some , GM vehicles sold. Chevrolet still has a limited presence in Europe through imports of the Corvette and Camaro , while Cadillac maintains a limited presence as well.
The company manufactures most of its China market vehicles locally. The Shanghai GM plant was officially opened on December 15, , when the first Chinese-built Buick came off the assembly line. Much of General Motors' recent growth has been in the People's Republic of China, where its sales rose Buick is strong in China from early Introduction by the Canadian Buick sold to the last Emperor of China, later being led by the Buick Regal subcompact.
The last emperor of China owned a Buick. GM pushed the marketing of the Chevrolet brand in China in the mids as well. As part of this push, GM transferred Buick Sail to that brand as an attempt to appeal to Chinese middle-class buyers looking for small and affordable cars. General Motors vehicle sales in China rose It is estimated that such a market in China is about 5 million vehicles a year, larger than the auto market in France and Britain combined.
However, some are worried that 'local brands like Baojun could eventually become threats to their parent brands if they compete more against established models over time'. Shanghai-GM-Wuling sold 1. GM products are also currently sold by the company Yanase Co. In August , GM announced plans to reactivate its plant that previously produced rebadged Chevrolet Blazer as Opel as well as Brazilian Blazer, and also build a new plant in Bekasi , West Java , Indonesia, which would produce 40, passenger cars per year for the Southeast Asian market.
In , GM exited the Indian market, which it had entered for the second time in The first time was in when it became the first car maker to manufacture cars in India. GM would, however, continue to manufacture cars from its Talegaon , Maharashtra plant for the export market. This plant has a capacity of 1,60, units annually. The older Halol, Gujarat plant with a capacity for 50, units stopped production on April 28, The India arm's domestic sales for April — March declined to 25, units from 32, the previous year and market share contracted from 1.
However, exports surged 89 percent during the same period to 70, units. About employees, 8 percent of GM's total Indian work-force, would be affected by the pull-out. Weak product line-up and below par service quality were the reasons for the poor showing by GM in India. According to the South Korean unit of General Motors, its domestic sales for March dropped by 58 percent, which is more than half compared to the past year.
In February , General Motors had said to shut down one factory and then decide what lies ahead for the remaining three plants in South Korea during rising losses there. GM has a long history in Egypt which began in the s with the assembly of cars and light pickup trucks for the local market. In the mid of the s, GM withdrew from the Egyptian market. Some years later, the Ghabbour Brothers began to assemble Cadillac , Chevrolet and Buick models up to the s.
In the s Miller Brothers Nigeria was founded as an importer of commercial vehicles of the Bedford brand into the country. In the plant and its distribution network were split into different companies and renamed as Federated Motors Industries. Its facility located in Nairobi assembled a wide range of Isuzu trucks and buses including the popular Isuzu N-Series versatile light commercial vehicle, TF Series pick-ups and Isuzu bus chassis. Selling entire GM's General Motors began operating in South Africa in through its wholly owned subsidiary, General Motors South Africa and was a market which briefly had its own local brand, Ranger.
By it was targeting the production of 50, cars a year but was being hampered by national labor unrest, strikes, and protests. In sales of fully imported Holden vehicles into New Zealand began. New Zealand assembly of Holdens began in and by the end of the s Holdens replaced all Chevrolets and Pontiacs both in , and most Vauxhalls. Opel, Bedford, and Isuzu, vehicles were assembled or imported at different times during the s, s, and s. All local General Motors assembly plants in New Zealand closed by Inheriting an Australian identity, GMH amassed nationalist appeal, which was capitalised on in when the first fully manufactured Australian car, the Holden was released to great fanfare amongst the Australian public.
It was marketed as "Australia's Own" Holden, and became an iconic feature of post-war Australian culture. On December 10, ,  GM announced that Holden would cease manufacturing operations in Australia by the end of In , GM exited the Australian, and New Zealand markets, and confirmed that the Holden badge would cease to exist by The global design center and Lang Lang Victoria test track are set to be closed, with the remaining staff catering for warranty-related claims for up to 10 years.
Despite its announcement, GM will continue to have some presence in Australia, as they plan to export some Buick, Chevrolet, Cadillac, and GMC vehicles through a new entity called General Motors Specialty Vehicles, as plans are still on track to bring American-built brands to the region, which was announced before Holden's shutdown.
GM has also done much work in the development of electronics for GM auto racing. An unmodified Aurora V8 in the Aerotech, captured 47 world records, including the record for speed endurance in the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America.
Recently, the Cadillac V-Series has entered motorsports racing. Chevrolet leads individual makes with wins. In and , the drivers' championship was won by the closely linked now defunct HSV Dealer Team. Its character was entirely empirical; it was whatever key people in each company had been competent enough to organize and pursue. Charles F. Its work was well known to GM central management through its relationship as a supplier and consultancy to Cadillac and Buick.
United Motors acquired Delco, and Kettering began his association with Sloan. United Motors also acquired at this time the original Remy corporation  called the Remy Electric Company , a competitor of Delco. In General Motors bought United Motors. Today's main successor corporation is Delphi Automotive , which nowadays is an independent parent corporation.
During the next few decades, it led to the development of:. World War II was a turning point wherein military affairs, after mingling with the technologies of applied science for some 80 years, first started to become fundamentally reinvented by them. Civilian life, too, changed in this direction. Alfred Sloan , longtime CEO of GM s to s , discussed in his memoir also considered a seminal management treatise the relationships between government, academia, and private industry in the areas of basic science and applied science, in light of this new era.
On September 7, , at the Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress in Detroit GM disclosed it would be introducing auto-pilot features into certain models of its cars. The "super cruise" or vehicle-to-vehicle V2V technology is likely to be first introduced to the Cadillac range, enabling drivers to switch in and out of semi-automated mode. Rick Snyder signed a package of bills legalizing the operation of autonomous vehicles. In March , General Motors bought Cruise Automation, a San Francisco self-driving vehicle start-up, to develop self-driving cars that could be used in ride-sharing fleets.
Strobe's prototypes produce brief "chirps" of frequency-modulated FM laser light, where the frequency within each chirp varies linearly. Measuring the phase and frequency of the echoing chirp allows the system to directly measure both the distance and the velocity of objects in the road ahead. Strobe, Cruise and GM will work together to develop the technology for future self-driving cars.
The automaker is already operating self-driving Chevy Bolts in San Francisco as part of a beta test run by the company's subsidiary. From the s onward, General Motors always maintained an internal dialog about what its economy-car and small-car policies should be. Economy in some form always had good demand anywhere, but its definition in the U.
In this view, "economy" in the U. The policy discussion often focused on topics like the higher demand for truly small cars in non-U. Although GM since the s has always offered economy models in the U. GM's response has been that it has always responded to market demands and that most Americans, despite anything they said to the contrary, did not actually demand at purchasing-decision time small size or fuel efficiency in their vehicles to any great or lasting extent. Although some U. Since the return of high fuel prices in the s and s, GM's interest in truly small-car programs for the U.
As part of General Motors Company's development, the firm revived one of its idled U. This was the first time that GM produced a sub compact car in the United States since the Chevrolet Chevette ended production in Production started in late with the Chevrolet Sonic. General Motors has published principles regarding the environment and maintains an extensive website to inform the public.
In , General Motors committed to engineering half of its manufacturing plants to be landfill-free. In order to achieve its landfill-free status, production waste is recycled or reused in the manufacturing process. The world's largest rooftop solar power installation was installed at General Motors Spanish Zaragoza Manufacturing Plant in late The installation was created, owned and operated by Veolia Environment and Clairvoyant Energy, who lease the rooftop area from General Motors.
GM has long worked on alternative-technology vehicles , and has led the industry with ethanol-burning flexible-fuel vehicles that can run on either E85 ethanol or gasoline. The company was the first to use turbochargers and was an early proponent of V6 engines in the s, but quickly lost interest as muscle car popularity increased. They demonstrated  gas turbine vehicles powered by kerosene , an area of interest throughout the industry, but abandoned the alternative engine configuration in view of the oil crisis.
In the s and s, GM pushed the benefits of diesel engines and cylinder deactivation technologies with disastrous results due to poor durability in the Oldsmobile diesels and drivability issues in the Cadillac V variable-cylinder engines. In , GM, in conjunction with AeroVironment , built the Sunraycer , which won the inaugural World Solar Challenge and was a showcase of advanced technology. Much of the technology from Sunraycer found its way into the Impact prototype electric vehicle also built by Aerovironment and was the predecessor to the General Motors EV1.
The company has publicly announced that it is committed to invest heavily in electric cars. According to GM's executive vice president of global development, Mark Reuss , GM's vehicle lineup will feature 20 electric car models by These mild hybrids did not use electrical energy for propulsion, like GM's later designs.
In , the Opel Astra diesel Hybrid concept vehicle was introduced. GM has hinted at new hybrid technologies to be employed that will be optimized for higher speeds in freeway driving. Within the framework of its vehicle electrification strategy,  GM introduced the Chevrolet Volt in as an Extended-Range Electric Vehicle EREV , an electric vehicle with back-up generators powered by gasoline, or series plug-in hybrid.
The production Chevrolet Volt was available in late as a model with limited availability. General Motors was the first company in the modern era to release an all-electric automobile. It was the first car with zero-emissions marketed in the US in over three decades. The Impact was eventually produced as the EV1 for the model year. It was available through dealers located in only a few regions e.
Vehicles were leased, rather than sold, to individuals. In GM decided to cease production of the vehicles. When the individual leases had expired, they declined to renew the leases or allow the lessors to purchase them.
All of the EV1s were eventually returned to General Motors and, with the exception of a few which were donated to museums, all were destroyed. The documentary film Who Killed the Electric Car? The EV1's cancellation had disappointed supporters of electric vehicles. In , GM debuted the Chevrolet Volt , a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle with back-up generators powered by gasoline range-extended electric vehicle.
Deliveries in California are scheduled to begin in late In March , the company announced that it would begin production of a new EV model in Lake Orion but declined to provide details about the vehicle at that time. The company planned to release these vehicles by Q4 of as part of their initiatives to build a controlled self-driving fleet.
The Badger would be sold, marketed, and branded as a Nikola Product. As part of its push into electric vehicles, GM revealed its new logo in January which used negative space to create the idea of an electric plug in the "M" of the logo. On January 29, , GM announced that it will end production and sales of fossil-fuel vehicles including hybrids and plug-in hybrids by as part of its plan to become carbon-net zero by This will allow General Motors to transition into becoming a leading electric vehicle manufacturer and become a leading participant in President Joe Biden 's ambitious climate plans to fight climate change.
The Biden climate plan will also lead to all fossil-fuel vehicles including hybrids and plug-in hybrids being replaced by plug-in electric vehicles in the United States. GM builds battery packs in southern Michigan. An existing GM facility at Brownstown Township was chosen to be upgraded as battery pack plant. The GM Electrovan is credited with being the first hydrogen fuel cell car ever produced. He said "I sure would be disappointed if we weren't there" before On July 2, , GM and Honda announced a partnership to develop fuel cell systems and hydrogen storage technologies for the time frame.
GM and Honda are leaders in fuel cell technology, ranking No. GM produces several flexible-fuel vehicles that can operate on E85 ethanol fuel or gasoline, or any blend of both. Since GM started featuring a bright yellow gas cap to remind drivers of the E85 capabilities. GM is the leader in E85 flex fuel vehicles, with over 6 million FlexFuel vehicles on the road in the U. In , GM pledged to have more than half of their annual vehicle production be E85 or biodiesel capable by GM Defense is the GM division leveraging GM's advanced technology propulsion systems, including Hydrotec Fuel Cell and Jouletec batteries for a variety of military applications including autonomous electric platforms and flex-fuel cell pickups converted for military use.
The program involved five designers, each lending their artistic talents to customize five different vehicles. It is a c 3 foundation incorporated in As it emerged from bankruptcy and company reorganization in , GM structured its brand portfolio brand architecture. Others, like Saab , were sold. Operations, such as servicing and extended warranties will be honoured for the next ten years. GM also pulled the Chevrolet brand from Thailand. On January 8, , GM officially introduced a new logo alongside a tagline "EVerybody in", with the capitalized "EV" as a nod to their stated commitment to electric vehicles.
The — Flint sit-down strike against General Motors changed the United Automobile Workers UAW from a collection of isolated locals on the fringes of the industry into a major labor union and led to the unionization of the domestic United States automobile industry. After the first convention of UAW in , the union decided that it could not survive by piecemeal organizing campaigns at smaller plants, as it had in the past, but that it could organize the automobile industry only by going after its biggest and most powerful employer, General Motors Corporation , focusing on GM's production complex in Flint, Michigan.
Organizing in Flint was a difficult and dangerous plan. GM controlled city politics in Flint and kept a close eye on outsiders. According to Wyndham Mortimer , the UAW officer put in charge of the organizing campaign in Flint, he received a death threat by an anonymous caller when he visited Flint in GM also maintained an extensive network of spies throughout its plants. This forced UAW members to keep the names of new members in secret and meeting workers at their homes.
As the UAW studied its target, it discovered that GM had only two factories that produced the dies from which car body components were stamped: one in Flint that produced the parts for Buicks , Pontiacs , and Oldsmobiles , and another in Cleveland that produced Chevrolet parts.
While the UAW called for a sit-down strike in Flint, the police, armed with guns and tear gas, attempted to enter the Fisher Body 2 plant on January 11, The strikers inside the plant pelted them with hinges, bottles, and bolts. The president urged GM to distinguish a union so the plants could re-open. The strike ended after 44 days.
That development forced GM to bargain with the union. John L. GM's representatives refused to be in the same room as the UAW's, so Governor Frank Murphy acted as a courier and intermediary between the two groups. Governor Murphy sent in the U. National Guard , not to evict the strikers, but rather to protect them from the police and corporate strike-breakers. The two parties finally reached agreement on February 11, , on a one-page agreement that recognized the UAW as the exclusive bargaining representative for GM's employees who were members of the union for the next six months.
The tool and die strike of , also known as the "strategy strike", was an ultimately successful attempt by the United Auto Workers Union UAW to be recognized as the sole representative for General Motors workers. In addition to representation rights, the UAW, working jointly with the Congress of Industrial Organizations CIO , sought to resolve existing grievances of skilled workers.
However, the strike ended with the dissatisfaction of Walter Reuther and the UAW, and the workers received only a On September 24, , General Motors workers represented by the United Auto Workers union went on strike against the company. Talks broke down after more than 20 straight days of bargaining failed to produce a new contract. Major issues that proved to be stumbling blocks for an agreement included wages, benefits, job security and investments in US facilities. Within hours, the ripple effect was felt in Canada with closures of two car assembly plants in Oshawa, Ontario , and a transmission facility in Windsor on September However, on September 26, a tentative agreement was reached, and the strike's end was announced by UAW officials in a news conference at 4 a.
On the morning of September 15, , the United Auto Workers announced in a press conference that General Motors employees would begin striking at PM after talks broke down to renew their contract, which expired earlier that day at AM. It has been alleged that this was part of a deliberate plot to purchase and dismantle streetcar systems in many cities in the United States as an attempt to monopolize surface transportation. Unsafe at Any Speed by Ralph Nader , published in , is a pioneering book accusing car manufacturers of being slow to introduce safety features, and reluctant to spend money on improving safety.
The subject for which the book is probably most widely known, the rear-engined GM Chevrolet Corvair , is covered in the first chapter. It relates to the first — models that had a swing-axle suspension design which was prone to 'tuck under' in certain circumstances. In substitution for the cost-cutting lack of a front stabilizer bar anti-roll bar , Corvairs required tire pressures that were outside of the tire manufacturer's recommended tolerances.
The Corvair relied on an unusually high front to rear pressure differential 15 psi front, 26 psi rear, when cold; 18 psi and 30 psi hot , and if one inflated the tires equally, as was standard practice for all other cars at the time, the result was dangerous over-steer. In early March , several media outlets, including The New Republic and The New York Times , alleged that GM had tried to discredit Ralph Nader , hiring private detectives to tap his phones and investigate his past, and hiring prostitutes to trap him in compromising situations.
Nader's lawsuit against GM was ultimately decided by the New York Court of Appeals , whose opinion in the case expanded tort law to cover "overzealous surveillance". NHTSA had conducted a series of comparative tests in studying the handling of the Corvair and four contemporary cars — a Ford Falcon , Plymouth Valiant , Volkswagen Beetle , and Renault Dauphine — along with a second-generation Corvair with its completely redesigned, independent rear suspension.
The page report reviewed NHTSA's extreme-condition handling tests, national crash-involvement data for the cars in the test as well as General Motors' internal documentation regarding the Corvair's handling. This review panel concluded that 'the —63 Corvair compares favorably with contemporary vehicles used in the tests [ Journalist David E. Davis , in a article in Automobile Magazine , noted that despite Nader's claim that swing-axle rear suspension were dangerous, Porsche , Mercedes-Benz , and Volkswagen all used similar swing-axle concepts during that era.

Barra tries not to dwell on the dark days before and after GM filed Chapter 11—a period the company's employees, from hourly workers to top executives, discuss in graveyard-whistling tones. Like so many others at the downtown Detroit headquarters, she worked for days at a time, with little sleep.
But she says she never doubted the company would survive. GM was saved only by billions of dollars in federal bailout funds. The government-approved leadership tapped Barra in July to run the humbled company's human resources division. The job placed Barra one step below Akerson on the GM corporate ladder, one of the top seven executives in the company.
She oversees more than 30, employees worldwide, and her day-to-day huddles with designers and engineers determine which vehicles make it to the assembly line. Barra began her tenure with a tailwind of sorts—or as much of one as anyone has had at GM in years.
The company had shrugged off much of the weight of its uncompetitive cost structure, largely through financial concessions won in emerging from bankruptcy and from closing or selling off product lines such as Saturn and Hummer. It was starting to rake in profits again. For a long time, consumers of American cars could get a really sexy vehicle or a really practical one, but they rarely got one that was both.
And if there's anything American consumers want, it's everything, in one package. Maybe the best example is in the truck market. Pickups, led by the Ford F and the Chevy Silverado, top the list of America's best-selling vehicles. These truck buyers are not hauling beams to construction sites. Most buyers are suburbanites who just like to tow a boat on the weekend or flip down the tailgate outside the football stadium.
They want the power, the performance, the cool, of a pickup. Ford has pushed hard to respond, retooling its pickups with smaller, more efficient engines that deliver the same power as a roaring V In F ads that run during TV football games, guys' guy actor Denis Leary brags about towing capacity and mpg in the same breath.
To combine performance and mileage in smaller cars, GM recently introduced the Chevrolet Cruze, a sleek little head-turner aimed at young buyers that was the bestselling car in America in June. The Cruze was the bestselling car in America in June. But to be successful in this environment, to bet on a future high energy price, you've got to hit your bet, which means you've got to have products that work whatever the energy price is.
There's another balance the firm must strike. GM increasingly needs to roll out products that work across emerging markets as well as traditional ones. The more the company can use common platforms for cars around the world—which is to say, build and sell the same cars in Beijing and Detroit—the more it can capture economies of scale and save money.
Problem is, buyers in China differ widely from buyers in Michigan, in terms of how far they drive, what features they crave and how much they can spend on a vehicle. Asia looms as GM's most important market over the next decade. China and India are home to droves of prospective first-time car owners—young people who are rising out of poverty and into a middle-class lifestyle that includes a vehicle.
The Scotiabank Group forecasts Chinese consumers will buy more than 25 million cars and trucks in , up from 10 million this year. Vehicle sales doubled over the past five years in India to 2 million units, Scotiabank says, and are expected to double again by the end of the decade. Competition for this business will be fierce—especially from Indian automakers who, thanks to labor and production costs well below Detroit's, are turning out starter cars that cost a few thousand dollars.
To handle such challenges in the past, GM relied on the legendary instincts of Bob Lutz, its longtime, design-savvy product chief, now retired. In his book, Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, Lutz writes about his from-the-gut leadership style, noting that he may have inadvertently set up GM for struggles after his retirement, because he relied so much "on my own will and my considerable influence.
GM executives and outside analysts say Barra's approach is diametrically different, one that relies on team-building and seeks consensus. She holds "hall meetings" to solicit advice on project direction. She challenges engineers and designers to rethink their assumptions.
Lutz's motto was "Often wrong, never in doubt. She challenges the status quo pretty well. She's provocative. She's an outstanding listener. And I guess she kind of has a consensus approach, but when it's not coming together, she gets concise and she's pretty decisive. Barra cultivates that image in the course of an interview in Detroit for this article. She deflects questions about her vision for the future of GM's product line. Asked what imprint she hopes to leave on the company—what we'll say a Mary Barra-era vehicle looks like—she demurs and talks about her team.
So if we as a company have the right technology that allows us to deliver the fuel economy that is, I think, where the world is going, yet still offer a range of size and products to meet people's needs and wants, that's how we win. Barra has no hesitation ticking off a list of challenges GM—and every carmaker—must confront. Automakers must develop and master advanced propulsion systems, including electric-powered cars and trucks that can drive hundreds of miles without a charge and deliver handling and brawn on par with traditional gasoline engines.
Engineers will need to safely integrate smart technology for drivers and "infotainment" for passengers. Colleagues say Barra's understanding flows from her long and varied career at GM. In person, though, it's hard to shake the idea that her approach to the job started with her cousin's red convertible —that she is, at heart, a car girl.
She has arrived for the interview in a black pantsuit, her blouse open at the neck. Her smile is as warm and friendly as, well, a Camaro, which, incidentally, is not her day-to-day car these days. That would be a Cadillac Escalade, a status-symbol favorite of pro athletes, that Barra chose largely for its carrying capacity; her year-old son was until recently a hockey goalie, a job that comes with a lot of gear. Barra seldom has time to take the Escalade out for a cruise, but she often looks forward to her minute commute.

This is capitalism. Market signals, especially over the past year, have been clear about companies needing to reduce risks from climate change and any policies enacted by governments to combat it. Major institutional investors around the world, including the largest fund mangers and pension funds, have put climate alongside other business metrics as they decide where to deploy their money, and are demanding results.
A look at the sixfold increase over the past 12 months in the stock price of leading EV light Tesla Inc. But investors are betting big on the potential for growth from what is still a small part of the car market.
The implications go well beyond the assembly line. If the plans of GM and the others pan out, energy systems will be forced into massive change. The next years will be a crucial test for jurisdictions such as Alberta, as their fossil-fuel-powered economies are pushed into quicker transition than many leaders would have expected. Meanwhile, electricity grids around the world will require massive investments in battery-storage technology to deal with the increased demand and shift to more renewable generation.
It is one of the most ambitious in the industry, but is by no means the only one. Rival Ford Motor Co. Volkswagen, Toyota and Stellantis, the newly merged Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Groupe PSA, have all made similar commitments to slash emissions, as have the countries in which they operate — including Canada.
Carmakers have to persuade consumers that EVs and other alternatives, such as hydrogen fuel cells, are the way of the future.
